Caregiver Counselors can help individuals and their families navigate the difficult decisions and uncertainties that they face. In addition to care consultations, caregivers can learn about support groups, training opportunities, respite (homecare/daycare) assistive devices and/or safety services.

The department works with multiple funding sources and will work with the caregiver to help establish their options.

A Caregiver Resource Center is located in the Olean office and has a selection of caregiver videos and books. Additionally, caregiver e-books can be accessed at no cost through the Chautauqua/Cattaraugus Library system.
